Join CurePSP for Ask the Expert with Dr. Chantal Boisvert!

Patients with PSP, CBD and MSA often have significant issues with their eyes and their vision, such as opening and closing their eyes, blinking, decreased vision, dry eyes, and difficulty reading or looking down.  In this webinar, Dr. Chantal Boisvert will review how these different conditions can affect the eyes and how we can improve these symptoms.  Then, Dr. Boisvert will answer questions that were submitted during registration. Please submit your questions to info@curepsp.org.

Dr. Chantal Boisvert, Associate Professor of Ophthalmology at Duke University Eye Center, received her medical degree from Laval University School of Medicine and completed her residency in ophthalmology at the University of Montreal Hospitals. Prior to joining Duke, she was Associate Clinical Professor and Director of Medical Education in Ophthalmology at UCI Gavin Herbert Eye Institute, where she assumed the majority of the medical student teaching load in ophthalmology. In September 2019, she was recruited to Duke Eye Center, where she now serves as Chief of the Neuro-Ophthalmology Division. Her clinical interests include all aspects of neuro-ophthalmology, including double vision and strabismus (misalignment of the eyes). She specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of optic nerve, cranial nerve, and brain disorders affecting the vision. She performs strabismus repairs in adults, extraocular muscle and temporal artery biopsies, optic nerve sheath fenestrations, periocular/occipital nerve blocks, periocular steroid injections for the treatment of auto-immune conditions affecting the optic nerve and botulinum toxin injections for blepharospasm and hemifacial spasm. She is also co-leading a multidisciplinary clinic specializing in eye strokes with a Duke stroke neurologist, Dr. Brian Mac Grory, MB, BCh, BAO.
